The IMF is shut down when it's implicated in a global terrorist bombing plot. Ghost Protocol is initiated and Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his rogue new team must go undercover to clear their organization's name. No help, no contact, off the grid.
Brad Bird's debut in a non-animated film is a success, as a matter of fact Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is the best film in the series. The film is enjoyable, captivating and thrilling, and it is impossible to take your eyes off the screen. Less masks, less explosions, but still cool gadgets and fantastic cars - BMW's i8 deserves a special mention.
This time, Agent Hunt - more humanized and aged - really needs his team's help to accomplish the mission. Benji Dunn, played by Simon Pegg, returns and a new agent arrives, William Brandt, played by Jeremy Renner.
The acting is pretty much good. Tom Cruise is always great as Ethan Hunt. Simon Pegg is very enjoyable as Benji. Paula Patton and Jeremy Renner - I wonder if he will ever replace Cruise - also give some great performances.
William Brandt: Next time, I get to seduce the rich guy.
Benji Dunn: Easy way to remember: blue is glue.
Ethan Hunt: And when it's red?
Benji Dunn: Dead.
